A Great Day continues..............

This is what was waiting for me at the post office this morning..........I stopped on the way into Ballarat to do my grocery shopping, BIG mistake. I had to put it all in the boot of the car and pretend it wasn't there while I shopped for food!!
Then of course when I got home, all the groceries had to be hauled out of the car and put away, say goodbye to 'he who works' as he left for work. Then the message waiting on the computer so thought I had better check that, that was my lovely surprise from Willowberry Designs. Very exciting!

I just love parcels from overseas, this was the last of my willpower breakdown from the other week.

I bought 'A Gardeners Journal' from Kirkbride Quilting.
I have belonged to a gardening group for about five years now, we meet once a month down at the local Community House for a gossip, coffee and sometimes we even talk about our gardens, anyhow, every year we have a Khris Kringle at Christmas so I thought some of these little things would be ideal. Don't know how our 'token' male will take a gardening apron with stitchery on but Dougie is a good sport!
I already have Material Obsession, so when my book club sent the last catalogue and this was in it, I thought I had better have it, glad I did, the quilts are just fabulous, amazing colours!!

This is my indulgence from 'The Fat Quarter Shop', I think they called it a 'Jelly Cake' of Natures Chorus, the 'cake' is charm squares, layer cake and jelly roll. A jelly roll of 'Pack your Bags' and this gorgeous 'Prairie Quilters Basic Sushi Roll' of Lecien Fabrics.

Now this was the last thing I picked up at the post office, just a little peek. I subscribe to
'Catch of the Day', for those non-Aussies (and those not familiar with it) you get an email every day with that days 'catch', could be anything but it's always a really good price. Could be computers, TVs, wine and on and on, anyway last week my email said that this 'Hannah Montana' 3/4 size electric guitar (purple of course) was the catch for $29.95. Yep, that's right, bargain, even with postage it only cost me $45, RR is $149 (I checked it out). Now our granddaughter who turned 10 a couple of weeks ago is learning guitar so guess what she's getting for Christmas.

I'm going for the 'Best Nana in the World' award, lol.

It was a good day........................
